CEMBUREAU is the European Cement Association.
Our primary audience is Europe both policymakers and their relevant stakeholders. In this regard, we communicate the industry’s views on all technical, environmental, energy and downstream issues and policy developments.

Carbon neutral by 2050 is our ambition!
